SBS ‘Rooftop Prince’s popularity overseas seems to be growing larger as international coverage is becoming intense already.
Recently SBS was contacted by a news team requesting to cover ‘Rooftop Prince.’ Although the popularity in Korea of the drama is already widely known however the news team that requested permissions was from Singapore’s NBC Universal has surprised many.
Singapore’s NBC Universal news team visited on April 24 to cover the drama. Although the hallyu wave within Singapore is well known, yet it’s still extremely unusual for an international media to dispatch a reporter to cover a drama that hasn’t even concluded in Korea.
One of the reporters from Singapore’s NBC Universal explained, “The popularity of ‘Rooftop Prince’ in Singapore is very high. Within several hours of the broadcast in Korea the episode will be translated with subtitles in various languages on the internet,” sharing about the ‘Rooftop Prince fever’ within Singapore.
‘Rooftop Prince’ producer Shin Yoon Seop expressed, “Although we are having difficult time shooting as we pass over first half of the series, we are enjoying the shooting as we hear the good reviews and responses. I’m thankful to hear the high popularity overseas and it makes us feel more responsible.”
